Looking to do a personal swap for any boyish nursery print flannels! I can send polymer clay charms, purses, paper crafts, microscope slide pendant kit, and a lot more.

I think the sauce you're talking about on gyros is tzatziki. If it's done right, it's freakin amazing. Smiley

Cucumbers are actually remarkably good simply sauteed in olive oil or butter.  There are an excellent side dish for a light summer meal.

whirl them up in a blender, add a bit more water and drink as cucumber water!

Of course don't forget to put slices on your eyes  Grin
Hmmm maybe whirl up a pound or two and put them into a bath?

One of the sushi places in my town has a special saki with cucumbers in it. I'm not sure exactly what saki they use but it is a cold saki with very thinly sliced cucumbers in it and you drink it out of cucumbers that have been hollowed like little cups. It's very good.

I don't think it would freeze well. Something tells me the cucumbers would be absolute mush by the time you thawed it.

How about a simple cucumber orzo salad, it's one of my summer favorites

Seeded and sliced cucumber (chopped kinda big)
1/2 lb. orzo, cooked, cooled, tossed in a smidge of olive oil
feta cheese
kalameta olives (if there's a good greek deli near you, get them there, they're better than what the market has)
sliced red onion

Make a dressing, with 2 parts olive oil, 1 part red vinegar, 1 small lemon squeezed, generous oregano, salt & pepper, put it an old jam jar and give it a good shake, then toss

This is also awesome over greens too, it keeps well in this state and just throw it over some baby romaine lettuce and yum, yum, you got some ruffage too!


Sliced Cucumber in a refridgerated marinade of rice wine vinegar, shallots, and a smidge of soy sauce. It's a japanese pickle!
